Top 10 Hardest Mario & Luigi BossesHakros323
The Top Ten
In the original games, this boss is very likely to go first, meaning that there's a chance of losing immediately.
The remake makes this boss even harder due to two changes:
1) Her arms become elemental, meaning that Fire and Thunder Bros. (and their stronger counterparts) can heal her arms if your attack targets the wrong arm.
2) There was an attack she uses in the original that requires you to knock back energy orbs, damaging her. In the remake, this attack doesn't reflect, so no loads of damage to the boss when this move is used. The remake also gave the bestiary better stats, somher attacks hits harder.
While the boss is hard it wasn't unfair like everyone says - Pikachu7586
This boss was so tricky! She has so much HP and you can't even attack her soul unless you defeat the other parts of her, and it takes forever! Even with Easy Mode this boss is very hard! - darthvadern
I did find Cackletta to be a bit difficult, and while I am a seasoned gamer, she did give a little trouble... but I’ll be casting my vote elsewhere. She isn’t as absurdly unbeatable as everyone claims. - PianoKing03V 4 Comments
This stage is so damn hard as a final boss is supposed to be.
It was one an incredibly tough boss fight. I didn't vote Cackletta Soul because it was hard because it was cheap. This one isn't cheap-it's just really hard! - Garythesnail
This game had tons of difficult bosses, but this one was the hardest. I mean come on nintendo...
Even when I had very good gear that lets you have infinite items, and heals BP and HP a good amount each turn, I still almost died to this boss. The hardest by far.V 4 Comments
I know, right?! Nonetheless, M&L: PIT is the best Mario & Luigi game ever.
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is top 1 on best Mario & Luigi games, with Superstar Saga being top 2, Bowser's Inside Story being top 3 & Dream Team being top 4.
Nah Bowser's Inside Story is easily the best of the series. But still Elder Princess Shroob is one of the hardest bosses in the series - Pikachu7586
I don't even get how people prefer M&L: BIS and M&L: DT over M&L: SS and M&L: PIT.
His attacks are REALLY strong, and hard to dodge. You're either lucky or skilled if you can dodge all (or at least most) of his attacks in the dimensional rift.
A pretty fun boss battle with decent challenge. Except for the motion controls glitch. That's probably why this is here.
The rift was way to easy
Yeah right. seriously megasparklegoomba in paper Mario sticker star is harder than those two wimps
Really? I found him rather easy. Compared to Ice Midbus, of course. - Garythesnail
The 4 turns till game over and spikey head screwed me over way too many times you need more then 4 turns
That guy sucked to beat with him having like nine fakes instead of six
I found him pretty easy
This one's easy! - darthvadern
The original Antasma was arguably my favorite fight in the game, and it certainly delivered on difficulty, but Antasma X was NIGHTMARISH. You get only 14 turns to defeat him-and if he sends you to the nightmare world, you lose one. You'll need to use as many Luiginary attacks as possible if you even want a chance of taking him down. - Garythesnail
Antasma is my favorite boss in any RPG game.
This is the only boss I can't beat
This guy was absurd if you weren’t powered up enough... - PianoKing03V 3 Comments
Not only do you have to get through the 6 X bosses before him in the boss rush to battle him, his attacks are borderline impossible to avoid and he does a TON of damage. - Garythesnail
This guy is a nightmare. First of all, you have 35 turns to beat him AND every other battle ring boss. Second, even if you're a master magic window attacker, it's incredibly hard, since he INHALES your bros. items. His attacks are hard to dodge, plus they do insane amounts of damage! The first time I played this game, it took me 10 TRIES OF PURE AGONY just to beat him! The only reason I won the 10th time is because I Magic Window'd 5,000 of his HP. Even dealing the last 2,000 damage is brutal! How is he not #1?!
How this not in the top 5 at least! cackletta's soul should also be in the top 5 but bowser x should be number one. He has very powerful attacks, over 7000 HP, can steal your special attack items, and you have limited items and turns. Do I need to say anything else to convince you that he should be number.
Honestly, both the first and second battle were difficult, even for me. Many people consider this the most difficult boss in Paper Jam. I think they should be fairly high on the list.
I played this battle like a million times and I never could beat it until I put it in easy mode these guys are beast
Yeah, it took me forever to get through these guys. Ludwig was a big problem.
Second hardest boss in PJ behind Shiny RoboBowser in my opinion. - Tyler730V 3 Comments
Whaa? Fawful express? Hard? When I played bowser's inside story I thought it was very easy (I actually found all giant battles very easy, but I never reached the point where you fight peach's castle)
The DS' shoddy mic makes it hard to land Bowser's fire attacks to Excellents, which is essential for this boss. With annoying attacks and DS' mic, this is the only boss besides Bowser X that took me several tries to beat. By far the hardest of the giant fights still.
If you're talking about the second fight then yeah. Very hard and his shield is very annoying as well! - darthvadern
"IT IS THE OVERHEAT! " - Garythesnail
Her attacks are fast-paced and do tons of damage, and it can catch you by surprise the first time. - Garythesnail
This was pretty hard! Her attacks can be very random and it's hard to time your jumps right! - darthvadern
He is just our right INSANITY
These guys are not that bad in the main story, but in the battle ring they are incredibly tough. Both of the kameks attacks deal brutal amounts of damage that can outright KO your bros in one hit! There attacks are already difficult to dogde, especially that chase sequence...
It was all easy until the star driver and its retarded controls. I was as mad as hell when he was revived, damn you Kamek I'm still trying to get past this abomination, thanks for wasting countless hours of my childhood Nintendo!
Takes a LONG time to beat and at the level I was at, almost every attack could kill me in one hit!
By FAR the hardest non-bonus boss in the series - xandermartin98
This guy was tough on my first playthrough, and still gives me trouble to this day. - JTLH101
This guy had way too much HP to the point it takes forever to make him lose half of the HP! - darthvadern
This boss was hard! I want to have the remake let you play as Starlow during the fight instead of Luigi.
I don't remember this being hard - darthvadern
I don't remember much - darthvadern
